The ESPYs 2018, ESPN’s award show to honor and celebrate athletes, was held Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Former professional race car driver Danica Patrick hosted the 26th annual ESPY awards and became the first woman to ever host the ESPN award show.

This year, Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin and Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim won Male and Female Athlete of the year, respectively. Last year’s World Series champion Houston Astros were named the best team at the ESPYs 2018.

Aside from the many moments to celebrate the accomplishments of athletes on the field, a powerful and emotional moment at the 2018 ESPYs happened when Jennifer Garner presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to more than 100 sexual abuse victims and survivors of former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

 

In total, 141 child athletes including Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman took the stage to accept this year’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
